PAUL HASLINGER SCORES ‘UNDERWORLD AWAKENING’


Lakeshore Records score album features music by Paul Haslinger with songs by Blue Stahli, Angelspit, and Aesthetic Perfection

(January 17, 2012- Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the original score album for Underworld Awakening available digitally (iTunes and Amazon Digital) on January 24th and in stores on February 14, 2012.  The film is the first of the Underworld series to be shot in 3D.  Like the three previous films in the franchise (2003’s Underworld, the 2006 sequel Underworld: Evolution, and 2008’s series prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), Underworld Awakening features original score by Paul HaslingerAs a special bonus three songs that do not appear on the original soundtrack album — “Corner (Justin Lassen Remix)” by Blue Stahli, “Under Your Skin (Deadbeat Remix)” by Aesthetic Perfection, and “Sunrise” by Angelspit – are featured on this recording.   
“Looking back at this from my perspective in 2012, it is clear that this score [for 2003’s Underworld] more than any other helped to establish my work as a film composer,” said Haslinger.  “Naturally, having Kate Beckinsale back in the lead also felt like a treat, as she truly personifies the particular style and attitude of these films.” 
Paul Haslinger is an Austrian-born composer living and working in Los Angeles. He has secured a distinctive reputation for composing film scores, which incorporate both robust classical elements and compelling electronica. After working with Tangerine Dream for several years, Haslinger released three solo albums and scored two landmark animated science-fiction films, Planetary Traveler and Infinity’s Child.

Haslinger worked as a programmer for Graeme Revell, supplying memorable textures and atmospheric style to Blow, the Negotiator, The Siege, Pitch Black, and Tomb Raider, before earning his first solo credit as the composer of Cheaters. In 2003, Haslinger scored Len Wiseman’s Underworld – his first film to open #1 at the US box office – its 2006 sequel Underworld: Evolution and 2008 prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.  Haslinger’s film work also includes: Blue Crush, The Girl Next Door, Crank, Vacancy, Shoot Em Up, Death Race, Takers, After.Life, and the internationally successful 3D film The Three Musketeers.

In recent years, Haslinger has made a conscious effort to expand and diversify his work. His scores for Ubisoft’s Xbox releases Far Cry: Instincts and Rainbow Six – Vegas were enthusiastically received by the gaming community. In 2006 he was nominated for an Emmy for his music for the Showtime series SleeperCell.
In so many ways, the score for Underworld Awakening accomplished what I had tried to do with the first film: to write and realize a truly hybrid score (no pun intended), and to balance a fairly massive programming endeavor with an equally massive orchestral live recording,” Haslinger described. “I do believe the result speaks for itself as it is the most seamless, and to my ears also the most effective of the Underworld scores to date.”
Underworld Awakening brings a stunning new dimension to the epic battle between the Vampires and Lycans, as the first film in the franchise to shoot in 3D.  Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both the Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.
Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment present Underworld Awakening in theaters nationwide on January 20, 2012.  Underworld Awakening original score album on Lakeshore Records will be available digitally on January 24thand in stores on February 14, 2012.  Also available from Lakeshore Records are the soundtracks and score albums for Underworld, Underworld: EVOLUTION and Underworld: RISE OF THE LYCANS.
